  6. JoEllen Keller.... jrkeller at I love to have Peanut Butter crumb cake for my birthday. My mom got the recipe from my elementary school cook at least 50 years ago and made it for me every year till she was unable to do so. I continued the tradition by baking the cake.

  7. Oh goodness.

    That cupcake is amazing, but I've already pumped myself full of sugar today, LOL.

    Favorite to eat is a very large juicy, yummy steak... and Nuthing bundt cakes for dessert... if you've never had one, you are missing out! It is seriously a place that sells nothing but small delicious bundt cakes! REALLY!

  13. Happy birthday! I don't have a favorite thing to eat for my birthday. This year I asked my sister to make a coffee cheesecake! Yum.

  15. Hello! and happy belated birthday! I am so lucky, just finished reading the book, I want to try all the recipes but I have to return it to the library... and then I discover this contest. Hoping to win of course :-) I am French living in Canada, not sure which recipe I would try first, all seemed so delicious, but most probably something sweet. I really enjoyed this book. Love it when I feel that characters could become my friends, I feel like knocking on Jules' door to say hello! And EAT :-) I am so so glad there is a continuation, I just discovered that at the end of the book. So much fun. Such a nice surprise. And I wish I had a Neil in my life at the moment who would hop on a flight... I have not been lucky lately with men... not so eager to try at a relationship or just a coffee to start... imagine... kind of sad.

    My email address is xylia_yul (@) hotmail... com

    Best regards from Montreal, Canada

  16. Part 2... from Xylia! For my birthday, I would prepare this... "Petits choux à la crème"... I find this video goes really, really well with Clémentine and Juliette!

  17. Part 3... from Xylia! Hello... did you ever do the draw for this contest?! Have a great day. X.
